Phew...it's been hot!

Hot weather doesn't really lend itself to knitting......NOT. hehe...I'm sitting by the cooler, the blinds are drawn against the hot sun, kids are watching a movie and I'm sitting here (ice water at the ready) knitting some fun and funky stubby holders. (And if another kid asks me to make some more ground ice I'm gonna have to deck 'em)
I've also been knitting up some cute head bands. The yarns I've used for the headbands is a beautiful Sheepychic rainbow dyed single. I'll be putting a few headbands similar to these into Sheepychic shop....so visit there if you'd like one. They're $12. + postage. The ones pictured here are all off to their new owners this afternoon!!

And for a little Sheepychic update: The "Wallaby Rose" spun up beautifully. I'm soooo happy with her...I haven't loved a yarn this much for ages. It's actually listed on eBay at the moment...you can check it out at under CRAFTS - hand spun yarn. If you'd like a hank of Wallaby Rose or Wallaby Rose rovings but don't want to go through eBay let me know as I'm sure I can re-create her very closely.

Before I go just one teenie tiny update on Sharnas orphan babies...all made it...(this is embarrassing) and ready for their new homes. Funnily enough they are all bob-tailed except for two. The black and white one is staying home here with us...meet Daisy Duke...hehe.

Thanks for logging into Sheepychic bloggings. All the very best, Ruth...xoxox

OMG thankyou soooooo how is it that the photos do these no justice they are beautiful. I am wearing my headband ( the girls are going to love theirs also Karmen loves hers) and I have to take a can of drink to school pick up just to show off my stubbie holder also. I truly appreciate them xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox

Between you and MMD, I'm getting hooked on the idea of knitting. Now if I could just sit down in one place for five minutes....
